Some wines benefit from extra aeration, more than you would get from just pouring a glass from the bottle.  Other wines benefit from decanting to remove sediment – and of course, decanting provides some extra aeration, too.  If you want to be sure your wine is good and aerated before serving, you need the Twist …

The Lumos smart bike helmet has built-in turn signals

Sure, you can signal your intention to make a turn with hand signals while riding a bike, but those hand signals might not be so visible at night.  I’ve seen gloves with lighted turn signals on them, but not everyone wears gloves when they bike.  Everyone wears helmets, though, and Lumos has added LED lights …
